Shawn Maxam recaps racist stories of the past two weeks.
You know, modern liberals are just, I think frankly, totally off the deep end… their only answer is to yell racism and hide.
- The Elephant in the GOP room – Good news from the Republican convention two weeks ago was the party’s desire to seem more inclusive. Unfortunately some delegates didn’t receive the memo. Patricia Carroll, an African-American and CNN camerawoman, was verbally assaulted and had peanuts thrown at her. Carroll did say “This situation could happen to me at the Democratic convention or standing on the street corner. Racism is a global issue,”. Damn she is sadly correct.
- First Amendment Death Threats – Several days ago an inappropriate photo was circulating on Facebook. The despicable picture altered the iconic image of Obama’s Hope poster and replaced it with words rope and had a noose around the president’s neck. WTF. GMP’s Jackie Summers explains why some Americans hate president Obama.
- Let Freedom Ring – The intersection of women’s reproductive issues, race and class in America. The Atlantic discusses how banning abortion affects non-white and low-income women.
- White on White crime – Edward Wyckoff Williams explains how the recent Empire State shooting makes a compelling case on the inability of the NYPD’s Stop and Frisk initiative to prevent violence but to continue racism.
